(This set of repeats had 6,500,000 viewers....)

The University Challenge clip from Bambi was repeated during the 1989
Comic Relief on 10 March 1989. This lead to the 2nd repeat of Time later
on in the year, as part of the BBC2 Anniversary screenings. The success of
this prompted the repeat of the other five episodes.

The titles in brackets are those listed wrongly in the Radio Times.

When SKY TV was launched, The Young Ones were regularly repeated, first on
The Comedy Channel and now on UK Gold. Alas, these were heavily cut to fit
within the 30 minute time-limit.

The Young Ones was also shown on MTV US in 1986 (the ultimate accolade :),
SuperChannel and on Dutch television. It has on occasion been repeated on
Comedy Central.
